What You Need To Know About Using Security Cameras In A Healthcare Space

When you want to protect your healthcare facility, all you need to do is hang some security cameras, right?

Wrong.

A comprehensive security system will include security cameras, but how those cameras work and where the information they gather is shared are what will really affect how secure your office space is.

Ultimately, the cameras you choose will depend on your needs and the safety concerns of your location, as well as on other factors like price. But if you want to be fully informed about what your healthcare office cameras are doing and why, this guide is for you.

  • Weatherproof: Are your cameras going to be installed outside? Even if they are protected by overhangs or awnings, you’ll need cameras that can stand up to the weather for the long-term.
  • Vandal-proof: If your security camera is in easy reach, you run the risk of it being vandalized rather than it adding safety. Hard cases can help protect your cameras from vandalism and the weather.
  • Zoom: Standard analog security cameras will only allow you to see whatever enters the frame at a given time, and even then resolution can be low. Newer camera technology that uses megapixels can help make your view clearer.
  • Night light: Chances are your cameras are most needed at night when your office is empty – but what good is a camera that looks into darkness? Infrared-capable cameras can help you see what’s happening in the dark without needing any lighting at all.
  • Remote monitoring: You don’t want to know that your security cameras picked up a safety concern after the fact, so remote monitoring helps keep employees and staff safe and alert at all times. Know when someone enters the office after hours, and always be able to check in on important documents and valuables.

The 4 Essential Audio Visual Components Of A Healthcare Board Room

No matter the size of your healthcare office, it’s essential to have a boardroom that can seat your executive committee, board, or even clients or donors. This space should be warm and welcoming, but with a dynamism that makes everyone feel appreciated and ready to get the job done.

Yes, you want to make sure you get chairs and other furniture right, but it’s the audio-visual elements of your boardroom that can make or break efficiency and ultimate success. These are four components you absolutely need in a modern corporate healthcare boardroom.

Good Acoustics

Whether or not you’re playing music or sound elements, it’s essential that everyone in the boardroom – whether they or at the table or not – can hear what is being said. Acoustics become doubly more important when people are calling into meetings instead of attending in person.

Clear Video Distribution

A large format HD display can be helpful when presenting ideas to the group. But a multi-channel video wall will allow for the ability for more content to be viewable at once. Not to mention, it can make it possible for anyone calling in to have their own video screen.

High-End Sound

The speakers in your healthcare facility’s boardroom don’t need to produce concert-level sound, but they do need to be crisp and clear so that audio quality is fully optimized for everyone in the room.

Touchscreen Remote Controls

You don’t want anyone to have to fiddle with machinery in a closet just to get your video conference up and running, so make all of the elements in your boardroom easily controlled via a remote with a touchscreen display. It will look sleek and professional and make it easy to get your desired result immediately.

Smarten Up Your Healthcare Office with 4 Easy Upgrades

Is your healthcare facility operating at the speed and efficiency your staff and patients require?

If you’d like to provide the best service possible for everyone involved, implementing smart office functions throughout your office space or building can make employees happier, which in turn means your patients will also be more comfortable.

But you may ask, what will upgrading my office cost? If you’re worried about the upfront investment in smart technology, take it slow by starting with one or more of these easy smart upgrades with an immediate payoff.

  1. Motorized Window Coverings

Give employees a chance to block out glare-causing sunlight while still being able to enjoy the view if they want. Motorized window coverings that adjust to your desired specifications automatically can also drop your overall energy costs while increasing your building’s energy efficiency.

  1. Easily Controlled Lighting Systems

While task and desk-specific lighting can be helpful to localize focus, wouldn’t it be nice if employees could quickly change their own lighting with a touch of a button? Your conference rooms, huddle spaces, and other communal areas will also benefit from smart lighting that gives employees control.

  1. Integrated Scheduling

Having a gatekeeper responsible for scheduling room usage and meeting space or using a paper-based system can leave plenty of room for errors. With a smart scheduling system, your employees can book rooms and other areas via an app, so there is less confusion and delay.

  1. Easy Audio/Visual Connections

You don’t want employees fumbling to set up a video screen during an important meeting, so give them smart technology that can help them access data seamlessly through cloud-based integration. You can even make it easy for employees to change music or audio volume so that focus isn’t drawn from the important stuff: the work you do.

Your Health Care Conference Room Needs Improvement – Here’s Where To Start

A conference room is one of the essential elements in an efficient workspace. It becomes a hub for gathering employees to share relevant information, and is necessary for confidentiality purposes and privacy needs, both internal and external.

But when your health care facility's conference room isn’t ready to perform to the standards you require, it’s time to think about where you can improve.

If your conference room is ready for an upgrade, these are some ideal areas to start. You’ll boost collaboration and efficiency, and your team and clients will always feel prepared to go.

Chances are you have an off-site employee or contractor you’re working with at any given time. When that person isn’t in the office, how do you make sure the whole team can communicate and collaborate? Make sure your room is equipped with a viewable screen, speakers and microphones, and other necessary resources to make remote meetings more comfortable for everyone.

But it’s crucial that you can see the people you are working with if you hope to increase efficiency in the office. You’ll have a choice between flat screen displays or projectors, and ultimately your decision will depend on your budget, layout, and needs. A TV display screen can get more expensive the bigger it is, so is often best suited for smaller conference rooms. While a projector may be more cost-effective, if your conference room has windows, you run the risk of sunlight washing out your display.

Your audio equipment should also be designed to cut down on outside sound or ambient noise. It’s important that both ends can hear and speak to each other clearly, or you run the risk of mistakes or errors. For bigger rooms, locate multiple speakers close enough to seating areas as comfortable possible.
